About Rob & Jamie Baker

My family and I have been guests of The Betsie River Lodge as vacationers for the past 7+ years. When the opportunity to become owners came to be, we jumped on it! We have 4 children and reside in suburban SE Michigan. We will be making some improvements and updates over the months/years ahead. Overall our plans are to continue sharing this property with respectful weekend vacationers.

Rob & Jamie Baker purchased this lodge in 2014

Having family and vacationing in the area prompted our decision to invest into the area. We truly find the mix of rural quiet with close amenities to be right for our family and friends. We love it here!

What makes this lodge unique

We are an active family!! Biking, fishing, hiking, golf, beaches, skiing, snowshoeing and winter activities galore!!

The owner was very easy to communicate and deal with from the get go. The place is very nice, updated, and comfortable. The kitchen is very well stocked for cooking for a group of people. The back deck, firepit, and swing overlooking the river are very nice. Would definitely stay here again if we ever come up to fish the Betsie again.

Loved the place. It was everything it was advertised to be.

There was only one problem. The kids down the hall were boisterous...loud, even. Unfortunately, they were my grand-kids.

So, the Betsie River Lodge is a great place to vacation...it's even better without kids.

Can you say bah, humbug! I knew you could.

Betsie River Lodge is in a beautiful setting! The lodge was clean and maintained well! The views were gorgeous. Coffee on the swing overlooking the river is a must do!

Cute and cozy!

  • 5 of 5
This place is super cute and as others said, the photos don't do it justice. It's a little bit of a haul because the county closed the bridge near it, but it's lovely and secluded, and close to Crystal. The pizza place at the Mobil on 115 is great. This cabin is quiet, immaculate, and well-stocked. It was nice to sit on the swing and watch the river (although warning to parents of young children, the bluff is steep so you need to keep a close eye on them) with coffee in the morning. Would love to come back for a week - the beds were comfortable, the kitchen had tons of dishes and supplies, and the fire pit beckoned at night. The owners were super helpful. We also loved the huge library of movies on VHS and DVD - something for every taste and age!

Relaxing get away....

  • 4 of 5
Let me start by saying if you are looking for a place to relax and get away from everything and sit back and watch the wildlife this is the place for you. Young and old would love this place. We came up for a weekend get away last minute. The place is so clean and cute and well put together, very open floor plan. The place is better then the pictures on the web site. Everything we needed was here. We where so impressed with the owners and how they thought of every detail, down to candles for outside and bug spray. We sat on the swing and watch the river and people floating by. I wish we could have stayed longer, two nights where not enough time here. It was nice to sit on the deck and watch the deer in the woods. At night we would grill out on either a gas or charcoal grill and have a fire. The fire wood was there for us to use. We took a short drive into Frankfort and walked the beach and did some shopping. When we call the owners to inquire about the place they where so helpful and very friendly. We will be back very soon. Thank you for a great weekend....
